Long shot: this may be caused by your video driver (possible duplicate: 
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29536 ). Please try adding 
the following parameter to your kernel command line:


If drm_kms_helper is built as a module, do this instead:

echo options drm_kms_helper poll=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/kms.conf

You need to reboot for the setting to take any effect.
